Rea Kolbl is the two-time defending Spartan Ultra World Champion. She also won World’s Toughest Mudder twice and is tied for the women’s record with most miles at a WTM with 90 miles.

Rea grew up in Slovenia. She moved away when she was 19 but still visits her family regularly. Last year Spartan held their first race in Slovenia and they will be back for a Trifecta weekend May 21-22, 2022 in Kranjska Gore, Slovenia. Rea is hosting a small group of Spartan runners for the week before the race on a guided tour of Rea’s favorite spots in the country leading up to race weekend.

The cost of the trip is €2,000 euros, or about $2,200 US. That investment includes everything except airfare and daily lunches. If you would like to be a part of the trip, reach out to Rea on her Instagram page at @reakolbl

Rea and Will talk about Slovenia, Rea’s Olympic dreams in SkiMo (Ski Mountaineering) and her thoughts on Russia’s war against Ukraine.

Rea is sponsored by Spring Energy, Ascent Protein, onX Backcountry and Dynafit. You can follow her on Instagram at @reakolbl.
